Big Fat Follie!

Sooooooooo, scan #3 showed us one big beautiful fat follicle. YAY!!! There are some others but they won't really do much between now and TOMORROW WHEN WE INSEMMINATE! I am just about busting here. Readers, we need everything crossed now OK? get to it - your mission, should you choose to accept it is to cross fingers toes and eyes for
the next few days :)

Jay got the trigger shot and we will be insemming tomorrow at 11:00am... You may not hear from me again until we test which will be around the 17th.

See you then :)

Not yet...

So, we have driven to the clinic for the second time in a week where Jo has again been probed and poked and prodded to see where her follicles are at. It seems they have performance anxiety :s They are not big enough to do anything with right now so back home we go, where we will continue  injecting the Gonal and crossing our fingers... Then, on Wednesday we will come back up for another scan and more bloods - the results will hopefully show that we are ready to go for Saturday...

We are emotionally fine with the whole thing, all the driving is just frustrating and Jois a bit hormonal (nothing we can't handle)

Just as I'm typing this, Jo got the call to say she needs to increase her dose from 50mg to 75mg because her oestrogen levels haven't risen...

Also, I should mention that has been diagnosed with mild PCOS so that's why the whole thing is a bit wishy washy I think. I don't think I have mentioned that?

Little prick

Gonal injection no. 1 :) My wifey is so so brave, she just whacked it in there and didn't even flinch.

It's all happening now! I'm crossing fingers, toes and eyes here readers! Wish us luck!

I'll be back to fill you in in about a week, unless the Gonal turns her into a monster then I'll need somewhere to vent :p

Tomorrow we start injecting Gonal, the following Friday we head to the clinic for bloods and a scan to check the eggies... Looks like we will be triggering on the Sunday and insemming Monday... This is all a repeat of previous posts but I'm so frikking excited!

OK, so I'm off to snuggle on the couch with wifey and watch Paul :)

The countdown is on

So the countdown is on... Jo is due for her period tomorrow, this will mark "Cycle Day One" of our first IUI cycle. She will call the clinic and they will tell her how much Gonal she will need to inject daily and give us an idea what day she will need to start blood testing...

It's all happening now folks! This time next month we'll be peeing on a stick :)We need crossed fingers, baby dust, prayers and whatever else you can give us...

Back soon, stay tuned!
